Work starts on Hawkshaw housing
Bardsley Construction has started on site at the £4m project for Silverlane Developments on the edge of the Bury suburb, which is expected to complete in August next year.
Billed as Hawkshaw View, the development consists of 24 three- and four-bedroom houses, on the site of the former Bleaklow Mill. Indigo Planning secured a consent for Silverlane in 2017.
Steven Carnes, development director of Silverlane Developments, said: “We are really pleased to be on site and pushing forward with the development, we had some technical matters to resolve, but we have worked well with the local planning officers to ensure the development fits in with the natural surroundings.
“It’s quite unique to have a new housing development in such a desirable location. The development has already received significant interest which is very positive.”
Jon Simon and Pearson Ferrier are the joint estate agents marketing the scheme, houses can also be bought with assistance of the Help To Buy Scheme.
